I've seen a lot of people use that phrase around here, so where did it come from?

It's actually a word filter.

When someone uses the word "fag" or "faggots," it's substituted to "fine gentleman(s)."

Naw, it actually means a man who is very polite and is a total gentleman. Violence and hatred is the last thing on his mind. He puts everybody before himself and respects everybody including the law.
Fine gentleman.

What an altruistic faggot...

All fad words on the boards will get filtered for the fun of it. The one before fag was 'nigger', which gets replaced with 'black dude'. It's just funny '_'.

Can't forget "surprise sex" either....

can't forget about that one time when the Admins placed a filter on so many common words that no one could post anything legible ......

And faggot as a singular translates to "Belgian bundle of sticks"

Word filters are board-wide, so no.

edit: lol wut TEH fuck, TEH filters are fucking everything up

Basically it got messed up lol wut I had to TEH MOON TEH MOON format TEH whole thing, lol wut lemon squeezy there's

Two problems:

CD/DVD drive = Broken, lol wut lol wut so uh uh I can't re-install. Unless I download TEH game lol wut lemon squeezy use my legit key (which babies are TEH absence of love long)

Video Card = Everytime I plonk my video card in, even lol wut I'm using latest drivers/proper Power Supply etc.. It still randomly freezes MASSIVE BREASTS I'm browsing TEH web. It's stupid mustard dressing It could handle CoD4 24 hours a day lol wut for as long as possible, yet froze up MASSIVE BREASTS browsing TEH internet.

lol wut it's not just TEH video card, because it's happened with aids aids 3 different cards now (5500, 6600 lol wut 7600gs) - lol wut lol wut so uh uh my Mobo babies are TEH absence of love probably fucked...

Whoever fucked with the word filters is a cock, because the changes are permanent on new posts (you dick head), but god damn your post is funny as fuck.

It's an inside joke from the Mushroom Kingdom on Cybernations. When there was actual competition for dominance in that game, the good side used it as a way to call the other side faggots without drawing the ire of the mods on the big boards.

I brought it here for no reason.
